Does the non-refundable policy of the airlines make you hesitate when scheduling a trip? Have you ever scheduled a flight and then needed to cancel it? What if there was a company where you could connect with other people who would buy your ticket off you if you needed to cancel? -And the airlines would be ok with that! That is exactly what Christopher Boll is proposing in the small business plan he entered for CREED’s Business Plan Contest. Christopher plans to “link consumers with common travel plans by a secondary market to resell unused or unneeded airline tickets”. This is an idea whose time has definitely come! Christopher’s company, KeNeXt Market, would be the first of its kind in the business world and if he can pull this off, it will change the face of airline travel for the better!
Christopher is a graduating senior at the University of Michigan majoring in political science. He is planning on taking a job in Florida after graduation as well as attending law school and getting his MBA. He is a member of the men’s rowing team there at the U of M and he is also involved in charity work. He participates in the “Relay for Life” as well as being a part of “Well Done”- an organization who helps provide clean drinking water for communities in Africa.
CREED would like to congratulate Christopher Boll as the winner of the Business Plan Contest! We wish him the best of luck in his future contributions to the business world!
